Of course they are.

A PV guest can't make use of either.
Hi Jan, 

Thank you for your reply.
But, I also would like to know what timer a PV Guest OS on Xen use? And how does Xen set the timer for a PV Guest.
The same questions for a HVM Guest OS, how does Xen set the timer for a HVM? Thank you very much.


Best Regards,
Bei Guan
